What is Baby Signing?
Baby Signing is the use of signs and gestures to encourage babies and toddlers to communicate emotions, desires and objects prior to spoken language development. By combining speech with signs, language and communication skills are instilled as the child continues to develop their vocabulary.
Will it affect Speech?
No! Every baby naturally learns to sign at least one word in their life: 'Bye Bye'!
They see the wave of the hand at the same time as they hear the word. That is why 'Bye Bye' is often one of the first words they say! It has been shown that using Signing alongside speech in fact enhances verbal communication.
